Home Affairs Correspondent

More than a thousand people gathered today in Ely, on the edge of Cardiff for the funerals of two teenagers whose deaths sparked riots that led to 27 arrests.

The e-bike being ridden by Kyrees Sullivan and Harvey Evans on the 22nd of May crashed just minutes after CCTV showed them being followed by a police van.

The police watchdog is now investigating the circumstances of their death.
